SPOTLIGHTED ARTISTS AND BUSINESSES:


TRIBUTE TO SAMMY NESTICO

THE BOB NOVAL ORCHESTRA

SHELLEY BURNS ~ ACCENTUATE

TRIBUTE TO JOHNNY MERCER

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!

Tell us a little about your background...
I've been singing, fronting mostly, for R&B, funk, and jazz groups for yikes...38 years and loving every minute of it. Every seedy motel and dive, and every symphonic gala and Jazz Festival. Music and singing is in my bones. I love all musicians, artists....and all peeps everywhere. I prefer Jamaica in the winter months, but as long as there's a stage, microphone, and some enthusiastic, sincere cats with me...I'm a happy camper.

Hi Koke, if you're still there. I have a new song that might be perfect for you. It's called "Blame It On Me," and you can hear it on may page. It's right on top. Also, check out this article about Faith Gibson & me in Songwriter's Monthly. "Finding Faith" page 35. http://www.scribd.com/doc/32112747/Songwriter-s-Monthly-June-10-125-Issue

Hi Koke,
I'd think just about anything would be right for your voice. Would love to hear you sing "That's Right, It Was You," "Scratch It" or "Diamond Edge." They're all on my page. If any of them seams right to you, let me know. I'll send you mp3s, lead sheets, etc.
